Page update

I have a new page I am trying out, my Portfolio. I decided to make it a page rather than a post, and update it from time to time. So click here to see what I am currently invested in. Or just click the My Portfolio button on the side ->
Tell me what you think and enjoy!

After blogging about bitcoins for over a year, I have now done... the unthinkable.
I have, for the very first time, sent bitcoins... all of them....
That's right, I have basically emptied both my wallets.
Don't worry, its not forever! I just am using an exchange for the first time. Cryptsy in fact. Here is a referral link, although I am not sure  what it does...

I was actually a bit surprised at the transaction fees I paid to transfer my bitcoins. It was something like 40 cents in total, and I only transferred 4 dollars. I talk about low transaction fees all the time as a perk of bitcoin,so I must have done something wrong... ( as I mentioned before, the formula for transaction fee is a bit complex)

In other news a bill regarding bitcoin passed in Utah.  One of the most interesting idea of the article reads, "[The bill]... will allow the residents to pay their taxes in Bitcoin." Paying your state taxes in bitcoin is now a thing! At least in Utah that is.

Well the adventure will continue tomorrow as I explore my first exchange!

To the Moon!

Welcome aboard the rocket ship because we are going to the moon!

of faucets!

I discovered some new faucets  worthy of note!

Naturally doge coin is a perfect candidate for moon-bound adventures, after all  the shibes do say, "To the Moon!"

The next one is less expected, but still common, a moon bitcoin faucet.

This last site was an surprise to me. I have not seen basically any litecoin faucets prior to this, and now I might use it for the first time.

So I am quite a bit late to the party, but I may look into litecoins for the first time. Certainly I followed them before price wise. But now I might own some. Click my clicks and make an account if you would like! You will feed a poor hungry student. It also is a nice faucet as you can just sign up and leave it, forget it for a while, and then claim all at once and get a pretty good claim as far as faucets go.

Also here is a video for fun. It is much like bitcoin, so this might be a review.
